Belly is psychedelic stand-up, hosted by a comedian/sex worker with a psychic connection to Pink Floyd. Armed with jokes from the future and searching for her lost lover and comedy partner, Jules, Belly campaigns for tough-tongued humour to heal her grief and the paranormal energies in her neighborhood. Featuring Dawn Wendy McLeod in a no-holds barred performance with eccentric rockers a thousand times no providing live re-workings of classic Floyd, Belly provides just the right dose of odd-ball humour to cure Vancouver’s troubled heart.
